This was done following the enactment of the Supreme Court’s Regulation (PERMA) No. 5 of 2016 which states that the syariah economic cases should be handled by judges who have been certified.
The E-test is not the first time held by Badilag. A few months earlier, Badilag also held an online test for selecting candidates for the leaderships at the first instance courts and appellate courts.
"E-Test is definitely a breakthrough in efforts to open up opportunity as wide as possible for all judges to healthily compete in order to improve their competence and to enhance their careers," said Director General of Badilag, Drs. H. Abdul Manaf, M.H.
The E-test results were announced on Tuesday, July 22, 2016 and has successfully chosen 40 high court judges and 80 first instance judges of a total of 824 judges participating in the e-test.
The 120 participants will attend certification training and education for syariah economic cases which will be organized by the Centre for Education and Training of the Supreme Court in August 2016.
